Black Box Theatre
Where The United Theatre’s popular, main auditorium balcony stood since 1926, a new, second floor will be inserted to house a 120-seat cinema that will showcase first-run, revival and event cinema. Outfitted with the latest, premium 4K projection and digital sound, the cinema will bring full-time movie exhibition back to Westerly for the first time in more than two decades.
Inside the cinema, comfortable, premium seating and unique concession options will create a venue of comfort and intimacy, and position The United Theatre as a regular destination for film audiences of all ages.
The versatility of the space, in conjunction with the theatre’s black-box auditorium and “legacy” theatre, position The United Theatre as an ideal venue for hosting diverse film festivals and immersive, interactive cinematic events and premieres.
